Camping in the Woods
Paddy, James and Clare went off into the wilderness to camp and fish for 2 days. They left after lunch yesterday, and we fetched them in time to wash and eat before going off to sing with the choir today.
They camped at a wonderful site, close to the beach, but sheltered in the trees, with a well used fire pit. It is a half an hour walk from where I am prepared to drive the car to, so Dave and I went along with a fresh loaf of bread at lunch time today, to help them carry back.
It appears that they had a good time, had fun camping out and cooking 'roo' over the open fire.
Paddy and Clare did a lot of hiking, but did not find the routes they were planning to climb, but James caught 3 Wrasse, 2 of very good size, so he is happy.
He and I minced them up for the cats tonight, who let us know, in no uncertain terms, that they much prefer their fish freshly minced, and not bulk minced and then frozen.

You did warn them to stay away from the Drop Bear colony, didn't you? They get pretty rancorous as Spring approaches and they leave hibernation.ReplyDelete
